Perfect for One-Time Service Volunteer Opportunities!
"Precious Plastics" was one of the exhibit components to the Tricentennial Exhibit, Dream Tomorrow Today that ran from June 2018-January 2019.
The DoSeum will continue to collect plastic water bottles that will then be recycled using "Precious Plastic" Machinery. This machinery will continue to be used in our new gallery opening in February.
Currently, volunteers will be sorting, cleaning, separating the plastic water bottles in the ART YARD outside in the West Yard in preparation for the use of these machines.
Volunteers will eventually be trained on how to use the machinery as it is developed. Steps include Shredder, Injection Mould, Extruder, and compression machine. All machines will allow us to fabricate new products using recycled plastics from the museum waste.
*Minors (11-13) are allowed to participate, adult supervision will be required of course. Shifts are Monday- Saturday.
